Advocare Recap

Advocare 24 Day Cleanse – Day 6-8

I wish I took better photos and notes about what I did this weekend in terms of cleanse stuff, but life got in the way and I didn’t so Friday-Sunday are going to be lumped together. I think the one thing I am learning is life doesn’t follow your strict laid out plan, and sometimes just going with the flow is the only way to keep yourself sane.

Spark and Catalyst. – I didn’t have a ton of sparks this week, they normally take me too long to drink and it was a ski weekend so I took slams all but Sunday. Sunday the boyfriends mom and I went to church in the am and then she suggested we stop at Dunkin on the way home. I had already turned down alcohol the night before constantly so it was my cave. Plus I wanted it…BAD.

Fiber Drink, Protein, Complex Carb, Fruit – All weekend I drank MRS (Meal Replacement Shakes) for breakfast except Sunday where I had a few bites on french toast bake and a few bites of a potato casserole for Easter breakfast. Then I just had a huge side of fruit salad. I drank the horrible fiber drink. I found that the colder the water the better!

Snack- Lots of nuts! I ate almonds, cashews and peanuts as my snacks. Easter I had a few chips with guacamole, tons of carrots, and then two balls of mozzarella. Not advo friendly!

Spark and Catalyst.  Didn’t remember to take any catalyst this weekend.

Protein, Vegetable and Complex CarbBesides Easter Sunday salads were the name of the game this weekend for lunch! At the ski lodge there is almost NOTHING  that is advocare friendly. Good to know as next time I’ll have to pack my own. This pathetic meal cost me $15!

and yeah I picked off all that cheese!

Snack – I didn’t eat a ton of afternoon snacks, if I did they were nuts or a huge herbal ice tea. Easter I had desserts which again aren’t Advocare friendly but I kept it in moderation. 

Protein, vegetable, Complex Carb, OmegaPlexDinner Friday night was a HUGE steak with green beans and few bites of a potato. It was fantastic. Saturday the boyfriend and I went with his parents to a Chinese place. This is normally my favorite place but this time I couldn’t get my chicken so I had soup, dumplings, egg rolls and then some rice. Too much oil and not very friendly but I managed to keep the sugars out of it. Easter night I had some chips with cheese and then a grilled chicken sandwich.

Dinner Snack – None except chocolates on Easter Sunday

Herbal Cleanse Tablet & Catalyst – Remembered once. Not the best performance

Thoughts throughout the day – A lot of guilt in not being able to have the willpower to follow the plan to a T. Which then lead me to a lot of internal dialogue, of “you need to be easier on yourself”. Though I didn’t follow exactly how it should have gone, I didn’t let the plan dictate my life and I didn’t do a “screw it I blew it” and go all out on a bender. Through the whole thing I stayed booze free so that was a huge win when there was wine all around me all weekend.
Feelings  Guild, pride, weariness, determination
Cravings – Wine
Abnormal body functions – Not really things seem to be slowing down

Workout- Tons of skiing!
